CGO Fire, on the Eve of a Major Audit, Could Be a Case of Sabotage, Officials Say
The fire in Antyodaya Bhawan in Delhi’s CGO complex on March 6 destroyed hundreds of files belonging to the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DoEPwD). One CISF officer, M.P. Godara, lost his life in the blaze.
Yet the fire may suit the Centre, as a large number of audit files on the Accessible India Campaign (AIC) – a flagship project of the Modi government – were also incinerated.
Just last week, an entire audit team moved into to the fifth floor of the complex. Its files are believed to have been destroyed or damaged.
